Undying Love: The Final Battle to Capture Buffy’s Heart
Joss Whedon talks to TV Guide about Sarah’s possible return to Angel. The article contains casting spoilers.
Sarah Michelle Gellar’s deal to resurrect Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the May 19 series finale of Angel is all but signed in blood: "If she’s available, she’ll do it," her manager promises.
As a result, viewers may finally learn who the Chosen One’s ... um, chosen one.
"Definitely, the question of Angel versus Spike looms large in Buffy’s mind and in the minds of fans," says Joss Whedon, who created both shows. "But I’m not saying whether or not I have decided to answer it."
What Whedon may mean is that he hasn’t decided how he will answer it — regardless of Gellar’s involvement or how neatly the loose ends are tied up.
"Angel and Spike will ultimately feel some kind of resolve about their conflict over Buffy," he insists, adding quickly that the tug-of-war over Sunnydale’s stake-driving heroine will not rule the episode.
"It won’t be all about that."
We’ll bite If the long-running love triangle won’t be the focus, what will the episode be about.
"The whole point of Angel is the idea of the fight and how it never stops," Whedon hints. "The finale was always meant to be open-ended in some respect. That doesn’t mean I won’t kill everybody, but I might not (explain) why."
In the meantime, Whedon will be welcoming back some other familiar faces.
Michelle Trachtenberg is in talks to reprise her role as Buffy’s kid sis Dawn for an early May episode that will also feature the toothsome tag team of Julie Benz (Darla) and Juliet Landau (Dru).
But let’s face it — Gellar is the "get" that any apocalypse has got to have.
"Look, she either wants to or she doesn’t," shrugs Whedon. "I’m counting on the ensemble I have now. It’d be swell to have her join them."
